The idea of an innovative romance influenced all of my design decisions within these spreads. I used traditional, elegant typefaces like Didot and Baskerville to connote romance mixed with italicized Gill Sans Light to give a modern feel. Everything is purposely running off the page as if it's moving forward to show that this social issue is making a break through. I used highly cliche romantic photographs with hints of humorous modern cake topper imagery to push this idea of a modern, innovating romance. My ultimate goal was to portray gay couples under the same respect and elegance feel we get from wedding spreads of straight couples. All too often, marriage equality or gay couples in general are depicted as flamboyant, so I feel that I was successful in going against that while still giving the spreads a little edge.
